What we're about

Hello and welcome to Sensual BDSM for Dom/sub & Switch Beginners London.

** Due to pandemic we are not meeting at the moment, however, with lockdown gradually easing, we are planning to meet as soon as government restrictions in England are lifted, likely in mid-June, so join this group and watch this space! **

We are a London-based Private Members' Club/Group for like-minded, kinky, discerning adults who want to explore mild, sensual BDSM; a safe place where you can expand your sexual horizons in a secure, discreet and non-judgemental environment.

The group is for like-minded people who want to see if things like bondage, restraint, sensual touch, blindfolding, gagging, light/gentle whipping, slapping, tease, tickle and touch appeals. It's for Dom/sub and Switch -- people who like to try both Dom and sub. It's open to everyone over the age of 18 regardless of, size, gender, sexuality, religion or none.

BDSM is not just about sex -- although we all like that! -- it's about what happens in your mind and your imagination: the sensations, the stimulation, the erotica and more.

The group is not for hardened or extreme BDSM kinksters and people who want to be tortured -- it's for people starting out on the road (or a little way down it) who want to explore sensual BDSM and see where it leads.

We want the group to be friendly, open-minded and welcoming -- a place for us all to explore our BDSM fantasies in a safe, respectful and supportive environment.

Please make sure that you read ALL of the group's description on the home page right to the end and that you agree with the guidelines. If you do not agree with them, please do not join the group. If you do not adhere to all of the guidelines, you will be politely asked to leave.

Please Note: there is a one-off membership fee of £10 per person to join this group. This is to help prevent time wasters and people never showing up or cancelling 10 minutes before the event starts. The group is a private members' club for like-minded adults and, as such, you have to be a member before you can book or attend an event.

If you want to proceed we must have a quick call with you first, so here’s what you need to do:

Send an email to: vandeclub@gmx.co.uk with the following information:

** Your first name

** The first letter of your surname, so for instance: Kate S

** The email address you would like me to use (if different from the one you sending from)

** Your mobile number

** A little about you such as sexuality and BDSM experience, if any

A quick phone call is also required to say "hello" and to give you the opportunity you to ask any questions you may have. The call is mandatory if you want to join. If you are not prepared to speak on the phone, you cannot join.

By joining this group, you confirm that you've read and agreed to ALL the relevant guidelines.

This Meetup site is limited for the needs of the group, in particular the way the booking system works. The group will continue to use Meetup for announcements, but alongside that we have set up a separate email list via Mailchimp which makes it easier for us to communicate with you and to manage bookings.

From now on all bookings will take place via email. The email address is at the bottom of this group description.

Being a paid-up member will reduce the number of people who are members in name only but never reply to anything or don't show up. Please note: There will be an additional charge to attend each Meetup event and event payment will be required in advance.

Event location will only be provided after payment has been received. Money goes towards venue cost, accessories/supplies and organisation.

Please be assured that no one will ever see (or have access to) your email address or contact number -- EVER. They will never be given out to anyone. Your email address and mobile number will be removed anytime at your request.

Any announcements of Meetups will be done through email. Your mobile will only be used to let you have the full address on the day of the Meetup or should you have any questions.

You will NEVER be sent an inappropriate text and will receive a simple, discreet text to make sure you are available to speak if we need to call you for whatever reason to do with an event.

All Meetups are consensual between like-minded adults over the age of 18 and no one is coerced to do anything. It's easy-going, respectful and fun. You can just watch if you want to with no pressure to do anything. By joining the group, you are agreeing to these guidelines and confirming that you are over the age of 18.

Any monies collected as a contribution by attendees go towards paying for the hotel (or private house) that we use, covering any legitimate expenses and towards maintaining and running the group on Meetup and other websites.

We usually meet in nice hotel suites or in private homes. This is a private club for people who have a genuine interest in BDSM. We are a nice, friendly (mainly) professional bunch of people and like to create a good atmosphere when we get together.

We don't like rules as such, but there are some guidelines, namely:

** No photography, filming or recordings of any kind allowed and mobile phones must be put away on arrival.

** No drugs or illegal substances allowed, including poppers. This is a drug and chemical-free group.

** It's okay to have a drink, but it's not a piss-up. If anyone turns up drunk or gets drunk, they will be asked to leave.

** No smoking or vaping allowed at any event/location.

** A "no" means no. Simple. We all know that. We have run many events so far and they have all been great fun and we want to keep it that way, so please respect boundaries and do not take anything for granted. We are all open-minded adults who like fun, so let's keep it that way.

** Members are not allowed to post or advertise their own meetings or private get-togethers on the discussion boards. The discussion boards are only for this group's Meetup-related events and can only be posted by the Group Organiser.

** No one is allowed to get in touch with another member of the group on the message system prior to meeting them at a Meetup, and only then with their express permission. This is to protect people’s privacy. The group has to be safe for all people, especially females. If another member of the group complains to the Organiser that they have had unsolicited contact, you will be immediately removed from the group.

** Please be mindful of your personal hygiene and try to arrive at events already showered and clean if you can. If you are coming straight from work there will be a shower available, especially in hotels, with plenty of towels, so feel free to shower when you arrive.

In addition to the above:

We are not a brothel. No one is paid (or pays) for sex. We are a private members' club/group for like-minded, discerning adults.

We are not a dating agency, although people do meet others at our events (and have formed relationships), but that is a private matter between members.

Sexual health is your personal responsibility and something everyone should take seriously. The use of condoms is imperative.

The Organiser has no liability for events whatsoever and is not responsible for members' sexual health and/or wellbeing.

All members who RSVP and attend events are deemed to have accepted ALL of the group’s guideline and terms.

If you join this group it is on the express understanding that you have read this Meetup group description and are willing to comply with these very simple, but important, group guidelines. If you don't comply you will be removed from the group.

Group guidelines may change from time to time, so please keep an eye on this group's description page for any updates.

That said, this is a friendly, welcoming group and we look forward to seeing you soon!

Finally, I also run another group on Meetup called: Voyeurs & Exhibitionists Meetup Group London. Quite a few people are in both groups and there is a crossover. If you join both groups, you only pay one membership fee.

Here's a link to it: https://www.meetup.com/voyeursandexhibitionistswatchandbewatched/

We have already recently started a group for couples only. Here's the link: https://www.meetup.com/couples8/ ;

Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.

All the best,

John
